We rented the cottage -- it sleeps 6, with 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living room with fireplace. It was wonderful -- cozy and quiet with lots of space to ourselves. Everything was in good repair, and the furniture was okay -- functional, and nothing you had to worry was a valuable antique you might break. The cottage is separate from the main building, and so not only had a "private entrance" but was entirely private. Because of that we never saw the owner except when we went looking for her, but when we did she was easy to find and helpful. And the free wifi worked great too. We found it a great place to stay, and would love to stay there again, either just the two of us, with some family or friends to use more of the space.
